BABY MASSAGE

Baby massage is a wonderful experience shared between you and your baby. It provides numerous physical, psychological and emotional benefits for babies and the families who care for them. Joining a baby massage classes is a great way to spend quality time with your baby and to meet new mums.

This is a baby lead class, so if baby needs feeding or a sleep or even a good cry  it is not a problem.  Mums are not forgotten about, and we finish each class with an all-important ‘cuppa and cake’ to give our mums some much needed and provide an opportunity for our mums to have a chat, swap information and tips with others who are at a similar stage of life and generally take a few minutes to themselves out of their busy day.

Bodyamma class:

The Baby Massage course is suitable for babies from 1 MONTH until 12 MONTHS. The course run over five classes, held once a week in a warm, clean, comfortable space in Bodyamma studio and will be limited to a maximum of 8 babies. Massage stokes are taught in stages over the weeks so baby becomes used to touch and you can practice at home and ask questions when you return to class the following week. I like to keep the atmosphere relaxed, so there is low music and lighting. Parents sit in a circle on the rugs provided, with baby on a blanket in front. I sit in the circle with a life-size doll in front of me to demonstrate the strokes on. Each week we will massage a different body part and revise the strokes done the week before. On this five week course you will learn how to massage your baby from head to toe.
As well as learning how to massage your baby in a fun and relaxing environment, class is followed by an hour’s “Mummy Time” – giving you a well-deserved break, and a chance to meet other local mums for friendship and support.
The classes are completely baby-led and parents are encouraged to feed, change and comfort their babies as and when they feel the need to do so.

Being a new mum can sometimes seem an endless cycle of feeding and changing nappies. Baby massage gives you a time when you can relax and be together and it can have lots of wonderful benefits for baby too.
